Change of venue time. As much as I loved this site, I found a more convenient place to live. Yip, this site has now moved to, please update your links and bookmarks accordingly.

I hope you like the new site, it's more blue than green but that's not a change in my politics, I assure you! The best bit is that I now have a page dedicated to archiving my film stuff so it all sits nicely on one convenient site. Great eh?!

So come on over folks, it's getting nice and cosy over there!

I'm bored.

So I decided to have a play at Archive. I found heaps of cool stuff but I wanted to share zipzapzop with you all. This had me in stitches!

Black GST Interview

Sorry can't be bothered with the cute little picture today. You'll just have to click here to see an interview I did with Robbie Thorpe from the Black GST Campaign. This campaign is taking up a lot of my time at the moment so expect to see some more of this type of film over the next month or two.

Enjoy, and as always feedback welcome.

Industrial Relations demo

As previously threatened, here is my short film I made about the November 16 IR Rally in Melbourne.

I decided that I wasn't interested in talking about the purpose of the demo, as that has been well and truly covered by others. Instead, I decided to play with portraying the size of the thing. The biggest demo I had previously been on was about 8-9 thousand people. So to be amongst approximately 200 thousand people on one protest was an amazing experience!

The music in the background is 'Free' by the Strike Boys. I haven't asked them if I could use it 'cause I've got no idea how so big ups to them for not knowingly allowing me to use it. If you haven't listened to their stuff before, I recommend you check them out. There was one of their tracks on the third Green Room album which is how I originally found them.

Enjoy, the vid, look forward to any feedback.


Make Poverty History Hobart Welcome to Country

Click here to view video.

In the weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Make Poverty History concert on the lawn of Parliament in Hobart, Tasmania. I filmed bits of it and you can see the welcome to country in this piece of footage.

Welcome to Country is an important protocol to be followed as it is an acknowledgment of the traditional owners of the land and it is usually an endorsement of the purpose of an event by the local people.

The woman featured in this video is Trudy Mallooga (apologies if I have spelt this wrong) from the Tasmanian Aboriginal Council. She gives an excellent analysis of the effects of poverty on Aboriginal people and the hypocrisy of government when it comes to dealing with these issues.

While I was in Hobart I attended the Make Poverty History concert on the lawn of Parliament. There were lots of awesome acts but this guy stuck out for me.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Hobart, Greek style

I spent the last few days in Hobart and surrounding areas. Here's a wee mash I made of some of the sights. Mad props to the lovely busker who provided the sounds.

For lack of updates, computer access has been sporadic at best. I'm making progress in the film front. I went to the Melbourne Social Forum last weekend and met some great indy film people. Certainly came to the realisation that the more you know the more you don't know! I seem to be geting dragged in all sorts of directions away from doing film. But I'm having an absolute ball.

I have made a short film thing about the Melbourne IR laws demo, but it's too big to upload. If anyone out there knows where I can store a 28MB file online, I would realy appreciate knowing about it!

Managed to add another feather in the cap today. I am now an IT Consultant! Nice one.

But seriously need to find a fulltime job soon...

So finally my first vlog post. Apologies for the sentimental nature of it, but you'll survive. At least I didn't post up the clip of my wee cousin being gorgeous (that's just for whanau!).

So now I have this techmanology sussed, expect more. I've got footage of the Sydney demo to get up and I've got the IR rally tomorrow (although given the current thunder storm it may not be too fun).

(yay this is fun!)

Well, I haven't managed to get any footage on line yet. I have set up an account with a video hosting thingy but it's not working and I haven't been in the space to try and work it out.

Last night I went through all of my footage of Rod and put it all togather to send over to NZ with Kerry Nettle who's going to the funeral with Bob Brown.

I'm also yet to get my own internet connection but once I do I should be able to get this upload issue sorted out.

Thanks to my friends who posted comments :)
